The Associated Press and the mainstream media are up to their usual Fake News tricks as they lib-splain a Trump tweet and get it totally wrong.
According to the AP, “President Donald Trump is threatening to remove millions of people living in the United States illegally ahead of formally announcing his reelection bid.”
Even the Drudge Report claimed: “Trump vows to deport ‘millions.'”
Um, no. You dolts.
Trump tweeted last night the following:
Next week ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States. They will be removed as fast as they come in. Mexico, using their strong immigration laws, is doing a very good job of stopping people… long before they get to our Southern Border. Guatemala is getting ready to sign a Safe-Third Agreement. The only ones who won’t do anything are the Democrats in Congress. They must vote to get rid of the loopholes, and fix asylum! If so, Border Crisis will end quickly!
Note that Trump did not say ICE will be rounding up millions of illegal aliens. He simply stated the fact that there are millions of illegal aliens living here and that ICE “will begin” to remove them. No one with a brain thinks Trump is going to try to forcibly remove millions of people at once. Which I guess explains why reporters for the AP, Washington Post, CNN, New York Times, etc. don’t get it. They all suffer from No Brain Syndrome. Sad.
But in the meantime if ICE, under the leadership of new director Mark Morgan, starts to actually enforce the law, that will be a huge step forward. Let the radical Dems change the law if they want open borders. In the meantime enforce it!
